One of the rare complications reported due to COVID-19 is pulmonary pneumatocele. We aim to describe the COVID-19 patient case report with pneumatocele in CT-Scan findings.</p> <p><strong>Case Report:</strong> A 41-year-old man referred to our hospital with fever, dyspnea and a productive cough for seven days before admission. His chest X-ray and CT-Scan showed possible bilateral bronchopneumonia due to COVID-19 and confirmed with Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test. In the next two weeks, the second CT-Scan showed the development of pneumothorax dextra and pneumatocele dextra with a diameter of 7,8 cm. On the third follow up, CT-Scan revealed increasing diameter into 9,5 cm and air-fluid levels in pneumatocele. He was diagnosed with infected pneumatocele, and we gave antibiotics. The patient recovered after the twenty-third-day post-admission, then discharged from hospital after twice a negative of nasopharynx swab result and resolution of symptoms.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Pneumatocele is one of the rare abnormality findings in COVID-19 patients. If the clinician suspect pneumatocele finding, the progressivity of disease should be monitored due to the possibility of complicated pneumatocele.</p> Edwin Adhi Darmawan Batubara, Christy Amanda, Paralam Sinambela, Ricky Triweda, Jerry Indra Setiawan ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journalajcrmh.com/index.php/AJCRMH/article/view/30141 Thu, 17 Sep 2020 00:00:00 +0000
